Universal debt cuts could be avoided by using ‘financial headroom already with VC’, says Labor

In the Commons debate, Labor’s shadow work and pensions secretary, Jonathan Reynolds, said a universal credit cut could be avoided by using “the financial headroom the chancellor already has”.

Mr Reynolds said: “This government is already a high-tax government. And because of that, and by combining the freezing of personal allowances and the increase in council tax with much lower government borrowing costs than expected, estimates are already coming up for review in October spending, suggesting that There’s far more room to maneuver. “

He said borrowings were likely to be several tens of billions of pounds less than expected, having “already borrowed £26bn less than previously estimated for the first four months of 2021”.

“More importantly, if the Office of Budget Responsibility increases its forecast for the long-term impact of the pandemic on the British economy, which currently accounts for 3 per cent of GDP, in line with the more optimistic consensus, the Bank of England is now saying. being just 1 per cent, he would have a windfall profit that is probably £25 billion a year.”

He added: “The point remains, the decision to keep the Universal Credit and Working Tax Credit levels at the level it already has with the chancellor upon review of spending can be made within fiscal headroom.”

Labor MP: Universal credit cut ‘absolutely wrong for Britain’

A Labor MP has said during a Commons debate that the universal credit cut is “absolutely wrong for the UK”.

Labor MP for Stalybridge and Hyde, Jonathan Reynolds, urged members of the House to think about the wider implications of the decision.

He said: “I urge the members of this House to think about the wider implications of the decision.

“Dan says we will cut the lifeline of lakhs of people. Economists say that we may be spending from our local high streets. Even the government’s own internal analysis makes it clear that this would be disastrous.

“No one in this house can say they didn’t know. No one will be able to say that they were not warned. The impact of this cut is clear as day.

“It is wrong for our constituents, wrong for the British economy, absolutely wrong for Britain. Opposing members have a choice.

“Me and millions will be affected by this deduction, beg them, see understanding, return the families who sent you here and cancel the deduction.”

PM rejects emergency work visa plea after crop warning

Boris Johnson has rejected a petition to introduce emergency work visas after a Conservative lawmaker warned of a “crop rot” in his constituency due to a labor shortage.

Roger Gale, representing Thanet, said growers in his local area have had to throw away huge amounts of produce because there aren’t enough people to pick it up or take it to market.

Businesses across the country have been hit hard by labor shortages since Britain left the European Union’s single market and ended free movement at the start of the year.
